Product description

Martini & Rossi Rosso Vermouth is a light, balanced and scarlet-hued Italian sweet red vermouth. This famous drink was first created by the Martini family in the ancient town of Pessione, nestling in the foothills of the Alps near Turin. The exquisite red vermouth has remained inextricably linked to the Italian passions of food, entertaining friends and motor racing, since 1863. Martini & Rossi Rosso Vermouth is created with a secret blend of wines and a selection from 40 botanicals that give it a distinctive sweet taste, with subtle hints of orange and citrus. Its special red color comes from the caramel used in Martini & Rossi Vermouth's unique blending process. Artemisia is a crucial ingredient in the distilling of this sweet vermouth and continues to be grown and harvested just a few miles south of Pessione.

Rosso Sweet Vermouth is a blend of select, crisp white wines that are then augmented by botanical ingredients. While the exact Martini & Rossi vermouth recipe is a guarded secret, the brand does share that the spirit is flavored with exotic barks and Italian herbs, specifically sage, savory, and dittany. Rosso Sweet Vermouth is an imported product from Pessione, Italy, a small town located in the northwestern corner of the country, in the foothills of the Alps. The location was specifically chosen for the region’s winemaking prowess and local availability of botanical ingredients.
Vermouth is a fortified white wine, and like any white wine, it can be either a sweet or dry product. Martini & Rossi Rosso Sweet Vermouth (as the name suggests) is a sweet style of vermouth, though the overall flavor is undeniably complex. The exact recipe is a secret and includes 40 different botanicals, including locally sourced Italian herbs. Rosso Sweet Vermouth is red-hued and has a gentle sweetness, though it is equally spicy and bitter. Common flavor notes include tobacco leaf, espresso, cinnamon, anise, Coca-Cola, licorice, nutmeg, and orange peel.
Martini & Rossi Rosso Sweet Vermouth is technically an aperitif, meaning you would traditionally sip on a glass over ice before enjoying a meal (maybe with a lemon twist). Aperitifs are meant to stimulate your appetite and ease your digestive tract. However, sweet vermouth is a signature ingredient in many popular cocktails, most notably the Manhattan and the Negroni. To make a classic Manhattan, you'll need to mix rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice; strain and pour into your glass and garnish with an orange peel or Maraschino cherries.
Martini & Rossi Rosso Sweet Vermouth makes an excellent gift for a cocktail party or housewarming get-together. Most people don’t have vermouth stocked in their at-home bars, so it’s a nice welcomed addition. You can also purchase all the ingredients they’ll need for a classic Manhattan using Drizly's one-stop-shop alcohol marketplace.
